Continued growth in commercial business and residential services, led to an increase in average daily volumes by 5% in FY2016.

Higher average daily LTL shipments and higher LTL revenue per shipment contributes to the growth in FedEx Freight segment
The revenue of the FedEx Freight segment increased from US$6,200.0m in FY2015 to US$6,443.0m in FY2016 at a rate of 3.9%.
